Bed Bath & Beyond‘s store on Route 9W in Glenmont abruptly closed its doors this weekend without notice.
Just across the city of Albany, however, a new Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen is preparing to open soon, as well as a newly-opened Glennpeter Jewelers store that has opened.
Over the past two years, Bed Bath & Beyond has closed hundreds of stores, as well as updated the ones it has remaining. This is in an effort to reinvent itself at a time when any home product can be purchased online through Amazon or Walmart.
There were no Capital Region locations on the company’s list of store closures published late in 2020.
There were signs posted last week informing shoppers that the location would close on Feb. 28. There appears to be only one other location in the Capital Region, on Wolf Road in Colonie.
Despite the fact that the store claims it is slashing prices by 20%, it won’t accept its famous large coupons. They offered a 20% discount, too.
A spokesperson for Bed Bath & Beyond did not respond to a comment request on Monday.
One of the anchor tenants of Glenmont Plaza, which belongs to Benderson Development of Buffalo, is Glenmont Bed Bath & Beyond. Famous Footwear, Dollar Tree, and Marshalls are among the other stores. Nearly 140,000 square feet of total space is located at the corner of Route 9W and Feura Bush Road.
In recent years, Benson has added a Moe’s, Jersey Mike’s, and Great Clips to the plaza within the footprint of the parking lot.
As part of its upcoming development on Route 9W in Albany, about two-and-a-half miles from Glenmont Plaza, Trinity Realty Group of Colonie brought in Popeyes and Glenpeter Jewelers. In addition to the Sonic Drive-In and Four Points by Sheraton hotels, the $23 million development includes Mount Hope Commons.
